INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — 24-Hour News 8 Anchor Dave Barras was visited by a ring-tailed lemur named Betty at noon.

Barras fed Betty grapes while she visited with Larry the Animal Guy.

Larry Battson said Betty, and other ring-tailed lemurs, use their long tails for balance. They live in Madagascar. Their population has decreased in the wild.

Betty visits schools and has appeared on national television.
